If you’re looking for the perfect place to spend the festive season in Downtown Dubai with your loved ones, then head for Roda Al Murooj – where you’ll find a packed winter calendar full of fun things to do plus spectacular views of Burj Khalifa.

The resort in the heart of the city offers al fresco dining with amazing views of the blooming gardens in the sunshine of Dubai.

To welcome your family and friends to Dubai, you can enter Roda's fabulous competition to win a two-night stay including breakfast at Al Murooj worth Dhs 5,000. http://bit.ly/2zSAfL1

It ends on December 20th, and the winners will be picked in January, so it's the perfect way to start the New Year. To be in with a chance of winning, just click here to enter.

On Monday December 24, gather your friends and head down to Double Decker for a mouth-watering carvery eve at 9pm.

At just Dhs125 per person with a glass of mulled grape or a house beverage, this is the best way to get ready for the big festive day.

Even better, there will be carols and a visit from santa as he gets on his way delivering gifts.

If you prefer international flavours, then head along with the family for the festive dinner buffet at Pergolas from 7pm-11.30pm.

From Arabic to Indian and Italian to Japanese, you can expect only the freshest and most tantalising displays of food at one of the most treasured international restaurants in Dubai.

On Wednesday December 25, Double Decker will be hosting another spectacular festive meal with a four-hour brunch running from noon-4pm.

What better way to spend the festive day than surrounded by your nearest and dearest while feasting to the max?

With festive carols and a Santa appearance, you don’t want to miss out on these festivities.

Over at Pergolas, you can eat, drink and be merry as the kids are kept entertained by a dedicated play area and a visit from the big man himself – as well as a spectacular performance of favourite carols.

Of course, if you can’t make it down to the hotel there’s also a fabulous turkey to go service – with the chefs preparing your festive dinner to take away, served with all the trimmings and sides.

Starting at Dhs650 for a 6kg bird, it takes all the hassle out of cooking for friends and family.

All in all, there’s something for everyone over the festive season at Roda Al Murooj – but the party doesn’t stop there.

That’s because on New Year’s Eve, the whole hotel will be welcoming 2019 with a host of parties – ranging from the extravagant to the family-friendly, with spectacular views of the Burj Khalifa fireworks display.

Ring in the New Year with a bang at Double Decker, by enjoying a wide variety of tantalising drinks and dishes.

Enjoy four hours of free-flowing house beverages with the all-inclusive package, or dance the night away with live entertainment and performances by the resident DJ.

Double Decker also boasts spectacular views of the Burj Khalifa fireworks, and everyone who goes for the all-inclusive package will get a complimentary glass of bubbly at midnight.

Meanwhile, Pergolas will transport you to the streets of New Orleans for a blues-themed bash offering live entertainment and delicious food in a four-hour extravaganza from 8pm onwards.

It’s Dhs999 for a house beverage package (including a glass of bubbly at midnight), while those aged 13-21 can get in for Dhs499 and entry for kids aged six-12 costs just Dhs299.

There’s also an early bird discount of up to Dhs200 if you get booking now before December 19.

The morning after, head back to Pergolas for an extended breakfast brunch running from 6am-4pm.

After all, New Year’s Eve may be over but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get to spend the day celebrating.

For the perfect place to celebrate the festive season with friends and family this year, head over to Roda Al Murooj.
